Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has received orders for high performance computing (HPC) chips for AI applications from Nvidia and Qualcomm, according to a report from the Chinese Commercial Times.
TSMC will produce Nvidia's next generation Volta GPU using a 12nm process, said the paper, which added that the Volta GPU will be paired with Nvidia's Xavier supercomputer chips for self-driving car applications.
TSMC also produces the 256-core Nvidia Pascal GPU and dual-core Denver 2 CPU for Nvidia's recently released JetsonTX2 supercomputer platform, using a 16nm process, the paper indicated.
Meanwhile, TSMC also landed earlier orders for the Centriq 2400 server chips from Qualcomm. TSMC has begun volume production of the Centriq 2400 chips, using a 10nm process, the paper added.
